Orthopedic Surgery Basics

You have 206 bones in your body, which serve to protect inner organs as well as to provide motion and mobility. Chances are, that sometime in your life, you’re bound to break one of them. Sometimes, bone fractures heal quickly, while others need a little extra help.

According to the American Society of Orthopedic Surgeons, pain and injuries in joints, is the #2 reason for physician visits in the United States.  When bones or joints don’t heal right, or if you’ve been diagnosed with a musculoskeletal disease that causes pain, limited range of motion or reduced mobility, an orthopedic surgeon may need to perform surgery.

Orthopedic surgery can be performed in the treatment of the knee and hip joint replacements, as well as arthroscopic surgeries at the knee, shoulder, elbow or ankle joints. Orthopedic surgeries may include but are not limited to:

  • Total joint replacement of hip or knee
  • Anterior hip replacement
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (also known as ACL)
  • Hip abrasion arthroplasty
  • Knee abrasion arthroplasty
  • Hip resurfacing
  • Arthroplasty
  • Arthroscopic surgery
  • Hand surgery
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Arthritis

Orthopedic surgeries don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Excellent, accredited and affordable orthopedic surgeries are available in locations such as Ageless Wonders Panama, the Madras Joint Replacement Center in India, Terme Selce in Croatia and the Hospital De La Mujer in Mexico, just to name a few.
